All disability insurance contracts are underwritten by MetLife.
The right Long Term Disability protection is vital to easing the impact of disability on your business. Disabling events occur more often than most people may think, so being prepared for them not only helps your employees protect their income, but might also help minimize lost productivity in your workplace.
Our Long Term Disability insurance product is supported by a sophisticated claim model and compassionate service experience and appropriately maintains a focus on returning employees to work.
• A definition of disability that focuses on protecting an employee’s income
• Significant return to work and rehabilitation incentives
• Flexible contract provisions and options
